Answer: If your house is going to be empty for more than about four hours, it's a good idea to turn your thermostat up to about 82 degrees or so instead of the 78 usually recommended. Keep the house closed to minimize heat build up. When you come home, don't set the thermostat any lower than the temperature you actually want your air conditioning system wouldn't cool any faster and might easily waste money by cooling your home more than needed.
